ABSTRACT

A simple, sensitive and reproducible high-performance liquid chromatographic method for detecting and quantifying saquinavir in human plasma is described. Verapamil was used as internal standard. The method employes a single liquid-liquid extraction step with tert-butil methyl ether followed by chromatography on a Lichrospher 60 Select B C8 reversed-phase column. Ultraviolet detection was used to identify the compounds of interest.

The quantitation limit of saquinavir was 1 ng/mL and only 0.5 mL of plasma sample was required for the determination. The average saquinavir recoveries over a concentration range of 2.5-500 ng/mL ranged from 86 to 95%. Precision and accuracy did not exceed 5%.
